Brevet report from Iowa

posted on Apr 26 2016 by Martin Gruebele

(Reported by Martin) On Thursday I assembled my new superbike, on Friday I rode it with Jay for 80 miles to make sure it would not fall apart, and on Saturday was its first real test: a 300k (189 mile) brevet organized by Mike Fox in Eldridge, Iowa.

Reported by Martin and Ryan: Jay, Ryan and Martin flew to Paris to ride PBP, the world’s oldest still ongoing bike race, which is now a randonnée for amateurs. Martin finished in 57 hours 50 minutes (7th/451 Americans), and Jay and Ryan came in together in 68 hours, 12 minutes.

Calvin's 12 hour race

posted on May 03 2015 by Martin Gruebele

Reported by Martin. Jay Yost, Ryan Linne and I headed to Springfield (OH) to race Calvin's 12 hour race during the Urbana Grand Prix. We napped at a Super 8 and headed to the race start to set up coolers at 5:30 AM (4:30 AM CDT, yikes!). The race started promptly at 7, and a huge peloton initially kept a 24+ mph pace, made possible thanks to the mild weather (50-75 F, 5-10 mph wind). A PR day for sure.
